3 Reasons You Need to Consider Becoming a Texan Now

By  | 

Texans are a proud group of people. Regardless of heritage, they are Texan first, and they’ll tell you exactly where they hail from and why they love it! And why not? There’s no better place to be, and here are just a handful of the reasons why you need to consider living in the Lone Star State.

1. Texans Were Raised With Manners!

Respect for your mama, opening the door for a lady, and offering a cold glass of something to a guest are just the first three rules that are instilled in a Texan from birth. Following that, common greetings such as “Howdy,” and salutations like, “Ya’ll come back, now!” are common-place because they’re meant, not because they’re expected. And one should hear the words “Sir” and “Ma’am” quite regularly because common courtesy is deep-seated in Texas.

2. We Have a Large Land Base, And We Love It!

Texas is as large as a number of other states put together, and depending on the route you take, driving its entirety can take you a good couple-to-three days (depending on when and where you pull over to sleep). And taking a Texas road trip will have you traveling through various types of terrain, from the piney woods to the prairies and lakes, the Hill Country in Central Texas, through the southern plains and dusty plains of South Texas and the Panhandle respectively, the Gulf Coast, and the mountains and deserts of West Texas. Why would any Texan want to travel the world when they can travel Texas?

3. We Have a Great Appetite And We Share!

Texans know and love their food. If you choose your restaurants based on whether or not they cook their meat in a smoker or on a gas grill, you might be a Texan (to coin a certain phrase.) Chips and queso are a staple around these parts, to say the least. We’re both fans and experts in Mexican, German, Native American, and southern comfort cuisines. We love our chili and chicken-fried steak, and of course, Mama’s home cooking. Bring your appetite, pull up a chair, and get your eat-on, because if you’re going to consider becoming Texan, you’ll need to add a couple notches to your belt in short order!
